He released his first record, “Interwords” in 2006, which was hailed by Geoff Chapman of The Toronto Star as one of the top 10 jazz records of the year. His playing has been called "ambitious", "arresting", and "show-stopping" by George Harris at All About Jazz Los Angeles, who also said his Dan "walks the tightrope between calm gentility and fiery abandon". Mark F. Turner at All About Jazz New York says that "Dan gives new visions of the mallet instrument".
Most recently, Dan will be releasing his newest record, “Epoch” on Origin Records. The record features jazz icon Steve Swallow on bass, as well as giants Ben Monder on guitar and Mark Feldman on violin.
In addition to performing, Dan is also actively engaged in music education, teaching lessons (vibraphone and otherwise), as well as giving masterclasses and clinics at high schools and colleges in Toronto and New York.
Dan exclusively uses and endorses BlueHaus Mallets.
